Road collapses into river

A retaining wall in Araglin collapsed on Wednesday into a nearby river, taking with it a large portion of the road.

It is understood that the wall located in the Coolmohan area on the way to Araglin School, collapsed at around midday due to the powerful waters of the overflowing river beside it.
